WAY, Nigel Hugh Carlton

March 26, 2023 – Calgary, Alberta

Nigel Way of Calgary, AB, passed away on Sunday, March 26, 2023 at the age of 95 years. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 50 years, Ann Way. 

Nigel was born on May 31, 1927 at the family home in Merriott, Somerset, England. As a young man in post war England, Nigel apprenticed as an electrician, spending time in Alderney of the Channel Islands. He immigrated to Alberta, Canada in 1955 to join his older brother Larry in the Crowsnest Pass.  His work took him to Medicine Hat and eventually Calgary, where he met his wife to be, Ann. 

In his professional life, Nigel worked with the Calgary Board of Education for over 30 years becoming head of electrical maintenance. He was respected for his hard work, dedication, and expertise.

In 1962, Nigel became a Charter member of the Stampede City Gyro Club. Through Gyro, Nigel and Ann made many lifelong friends and participated in numerous club events over the 60 years. 

Nigel lived life to its fullest. He loved spending time in the Windermere Valley.  He and Ann purchased a small cabin in Trethewey in 1978.  They spent many summers in the valley before purchasing a lot and building their dream cabin with a beautiful view of the lake.  They made countless friends and participated in block parties, campfires, and many social events.  Nigel was a marksman with a water balloon and spent many hours tinkering at the cottage.  Nigel was a devoted husband and father who took great pride in his family’s accomplishments. He will be remembered for his unwavering kindness, generosity, and love.

Nigel is survived by his two daughters, Sarah Kesler and Emma (Dave) Smith, three grandchildren, Carolyn Kesler, Teagan Smith, and Aiden Smith, all of Calgary. He was predeceased by his parents, Dorothy and Philip, three brothers, Philip, Larry, Basil, and one sister, Mary.

The family of Nigel is grateful for the care and support provided by the staff and friends at United Active Living Garrison Green. Their compassion and dedication for Nigel during his stay there was deeply appreciated. In true Nigel fashion, he made many dear friends at Garrison. 

A Celebration of Nigel’s Life will be held in the spring.  Condolences, memories, and photos can also be shared and viewed at www.MHFH.com.
